The Awkward Years Project: SparkLife Edition!

By Melissa Albert Aug 22, 2013

We're crazy about the Awkward Years Project, a brilliant Tumblr celebrating that unholy time of life when parts of your body (nose, ears, front teeth, zits) start to grow REALLY FAST, while the rest of you still looks kinda blobby. As you learned yesterday, we weren't always the suave bloggers we are today. On the way to international fame, we struggled with picket-fence teeth, dandelion hair, and unpredictable mantis limbs. In homage to the AYP, and as proof that it really, seriously, gets better, we present our journeys from awkward to...less awkward! And generally better with the hair defrizzer.
